We are into the Snowmageddon.  As you know it never snows in the midwest, so when it snows we must go into panic mode.  But actually, this one time there is a lot of snow!  Above my Lovely Wife is snowshoeing to create paths for our dog.  The shallowest spots are over his head.  Normally we get much less snow then forecast, but not this time!
Here is a picture (sorry for the quality but it was still snowing) of my LW next to a huge snow drift at our house.
